thc University; Hon. Eppa Hunton, Jr?
of this city, nnd Mr. Danlol Harmon, of
Chnrlottesville, who wero na7ned by tho
Board of A'isitors as a subcommlttoo to
appear ln behalf. of the Boaz blll by
the. Board of A'isitors, are ln tho city
and held a conforenco at Murphy's last
7i!ght. They will appear and pross the
pnssngo of the Boaz measure, which pro
vides tor tho slmple crentlon of an exeoti
tlvo head and leaves tho deftnltlon ot
hls powers, dutlos and salary, as well ns
hl3 olectlon, to the Board of Vlsltors.
Tho West bill, which was offered by
request, provldes for a compostte board,
containing threo members of tho Board
of A'isitors, threo of the fnculty and
three of the Alumnl Association, whose
duty it shall bo to elect the presidcnt,
doflno .hls powers nnd dutles and llx his
lt ls sald that tho faculty and the
Alumnl Association nre behind tliis bill.
Mc-ssrs. Jones, Hunton ni7d Harmnn and
Congressman Glass aro nmong those who
will speak to-day for the Boaz blll, and
the olher measure will have a number of
strong advocates. So tho meoting prom
iso.5 to be a very lively one.
The Legislature ls golng to take a step
shortly looking to a termlnntior. of its
sesslon. and most of its membc-rs seem
agrceable to thls course.
Not long ago Captain Charles Trotter
Lnsslter, of Petei'shiiry, endeavored to
secure tho ndoptlon of a resolution Ilmit
ing tho sesslon to tlie flrst day of May.
Thls was earnestly opposed by Mr. Hun
ley, of Mathbws; and otbors, and ftnnlly
a substituto,. prepared by Mr. Cardwell,
of Hanover, was adopted, whlch declared
lt to bo tho purpose of tho body to dls
poso of Its work. ns speedlly as mlght be
found conslsteht with tho publlc good.
Now Alr. I-Iunley proposes to do a llt?
tlo llnillliig bhnself nnd will to-day offer
tho followlng resolutlon, cuttlng off tho
introduction of new matter aftor March
"Resolved, by tho Houso of Delegates.
the Senate cohcii'rrlhg; That after the 5th
of Maroh. 1903, no bills shall be lntroduced
othor thnn thoso 7-ol:iting to thc revislon
of Mie laws to con form to the new Con?
stitutlon nnd those ennctlng such new
Inws ns are necessary to put said Consti?
tutlon lnto complete aud effectlve opera
It Is bolleved that even wlth the Hunloy
resolution adoptod, tho Legislature wlll
havo enough work to do upon mattors
already lntroduced lo keep It hero untll
lato ln tho summer. The resolutlon of
Mr. Hunley will llkely pass. as strong
leadors, both In the House and Senato,
havo declared themselves In Its favor.
Ohalrman John AAr. Churchman. of the
House Roads Committee, snid last night
that he bolleved that his blll on the sub?
ject of corporatlons would pass both
houses ln tlme for the w.w corporntlon
commlsslon to organlzo and proceed to
buslness on Monday next. as pr&videX ln
tlio schodulo nf the Constitutlon. The
House wlll llkely finish the conslderation
of the goneral tax bill to-day and wlll go
immediately Into tho subject of corpora?
tlons. Tbo latter blll has been prepared
and revlsed by several stub nnd full com
mlttoes, nnd Mr. Churchman thinks there
is no reason why lt should consunie a
great deal of tlmo In either house. There
is somo talk of an omergeney act, en
abling tlie commlsslon to organizo, s.iould
tho general blll fall to set through thls
woek, hut a strong larwyer who was a
member of tho commlttee of tho conven?
tlon sald last night that thla would not
be necessary, as. the Cnnsiltutlon Itself
made nmplo provlslon for organization,
both ln tho body of the instrument and
in tho schedulo. Thero are a number
of promlnent Eomoera ls npplylns for
plncos on the clerlcal staff of the com?
mlsslon. Since tho retirenient of Mr. C.
Leo Moore from. the race for chlof clerk
It ls hard to say who wlll Ket thnt place,
but the frlends of Alr. J. Smith Rrocken
